I have for some time been looking for a good solid tripod for my digital SLR camera and lenses. I have considered many, some more expensive than this one. I have a friend with a much more expensive Manfrotto, but there is no doubt about it, this is the better tripod.
Solidly built. Secure and with a host of features normally found on higher end models. The swivel centre column works superbly and is great for close up work. The legs are capable of of being spread wide, to help on uneven land and to get your camera low down. It even comes with a little tool kit and a replacement head for the centre column to assist in very low angle shots.
For the money, I doubt this can be beaten.
